ABOUT THIS PROJECT

What do I look for in an inexpensive summer white?

That’s pretty easy – it should taste of summer fruit.

I’m not looking for depth – the complexities of a great German Riesling tend to rather escape me on the beach.

But I am looking for a wine brimming with the ripe fruit flavors of peaches, melons and raspberries, the flavors that make a good summer white an easy drinking pleasure. But it  should also posses enough acidity to keep it fresh. Not the tongue-curling dryness of cheap, lemon-water Italian Pinot Grigio or New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, but enough  to balance all that lush fruit.
